Mannix a late withdrawal

Emily Mannix has been a late withdrawal from the Diamonds Camp at the Australian Institute of Sport in her role as training partner, after not being cleared by medical staff.

Emily sustained a bump to the head in a pre-season match in February against the Firebirds in Brisbane. Emily has been closely monitored by the team’s medical staff and her return to full training is progressing well, however, unfortunately it has not been in time to meet the Diamonds Medical clearance as they head to the camp, this being held Tuesday 13 – Friday 16 March.

Melbourne Vixens Coach Simone McKinnis said, “we are disappointed for Emily that she hasn’t met the timelines for clearance, however she is progressing well in preparation for Round 1 of Suncorp Super Netball”.
